Baby #3 | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

One of my dearest friends welcomed her sweet baby girl into the world and I was honored to photograph her a few days later. I always enjoy photographing newborns, but it is extra special when I get to photograph my friends and family members. Morgan has two older brothers to protect her and take care of her. My friend is one blessed momma!

I always enjoy photographing newborn babies. However, photographing this little girl was extra special because Brielle is my cousin’s little girl. Born on August 8th, weighing just 6 lbs and 13 ounces, she is already very loved.

Will | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photography

I have had the honor of working with this family since before big sister was born and have photographed them more times than any other family. When they told me they were expecting baby #2 and they wanted me to photograph these special moments, I was beyond excited! I can’t wait to continue working with them as I photograph all of Will’s first year milestones.

Will is named after his great grandfather on his dad’s side. What an honor! I am certain he has some big shoes to fill. No doubt this little man is meant for great things. He was a champ for his newborn session and slept through the entire thing.

London | Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

Sweet little One | Joyful Moments Photography – Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer

This cute little man weighed in at 8 lbs and 10 oz when he arrived on May 4th, 2018. A week later I was blessed to have him and his parents in my Galloway, Ohio studio for his newborn session. In an email mom later commented, “you handled him so well and he just slept through the session!” I always give my clients a newborn session guide to help them best prepare for their session and this family followed it so well. Because of that, little London snoozed the entire time and let me take lots of pictures. He even gave me a smile! This ended up being mom and dad’s favorite picture… and mine too.

I always love when mom and dad decide to jump in for a few pictures. Long after your baby is too big to hold in your arms, you still have these pictures to look back on. These are such sweet moments to cherish.

1st Birthday Cake Smash Pictures | Columbus Ohio Baby Photographer

Birthday Girl

Emma’s mom is a friend of mine and I was so excited when she contacted me about 1st birthday pictures. I had the privilege of taking her newborn pictures a year ago and I loved seeing how much she had changed and grown. Mom chose a unicorn theme for her party and pictures. Jumbo cupcake by Miranda Huey of Miranda Made.

This Little Monster Turns One

We have been doing a lot of cake smashing around here lately.

This little guy’s mom (who also happens to be one of my best friends) chose a monster themed 1st birthday party and decided to stick with that theme for his cake smash session. She provided the birthday banner and I custom ordered the cake to match her theme and color choice.

Contact me today to book your child’s custom 1st birthday cake smash session.

Starting Solids | Columbus Ohio Photographer

Introducing Baby to Solids

After doing a bit of research, and after consulting with our son’s pediatrician, we decided to introduce solids to my son at 5 months old. We chose to purchase baby food from several different local stores including Kroger, Target, and Baby’s “R” Us. The very first solid our son tried was baby rice cereal. He was a little hesitant at first but eventually got the hang of it and started eating it several times a day.

Next, we could start feeding him yellow vegetables. We chose to start with carrots. He loved them! A few days later we offered him carrots again only for him to start gagging and refusing to eat them. We discovered he is very picky about textures and will only eat certain brands. All of his foods must be very smooth and creamy. His absolute favorite vegetable is sweet potatoes. He devours them within a few short minutes.

baby-pictures-Columbus-Ohio-baby-photographer

After the introduction of yellow vegetables, we could start on green veggies.  I was a little worried about this one since a lot of babies don’t enjoy green vegetables. Thankfully, as long as the texture is right, Josiah likes green beans and peas. I don’t have a photo of him eating any green veggies, so I will move on to fruit. We started with apples because most babies LOVE applesauce. Not our kid. Remember me saying he is picky about textures? Well, that means he doesn’t like apples or pears because they aren’t creamy. They have more of a gritty or grainy texture which he does not like. That limited us a little for stage one fruits as there aren’t a whole lot available. So, he likes three fruits, bananas, peaches, and mangoes.

baby-pictures-Columbus-Ohio-baby-photographer

Josiah now enjoys rice cereal mixed with banana puree for breakfast every morning. For lunch he eats a yellow vegetable and for dinner he eats a green vegetable and a fruit. We are currently still giving him stage one sized jars as we want to make sure he also still gets enough milk. We offer him breast milk after each meal as well as an afternoon and a bedtime feeding.

Asher

This little guy’s momma is a dear friend of mine. I was blessed to photograph him when he was just a few days old. He is already growing so much and has turned into quite the chubby little man.

Paxton

I had a new babe scheduled for a photo shoot but unfortunately mom had to cancel due to health reasons. So, I decided since I already had everything all set up anyway, I would do a model call. Paxton’s mommy volunteered her sweet little boy and I am so glad she did.
